Jio and Qualcomm comes together in major 5G tie up
Tech giant Reliance Jio and US-based company Qualcomm will come together to fast-track the deployment of 5G mobile based on homegrown technologies by putting India in a top club of nations with the capability to offer superfast speeds of 1 gigabyte per second to users.
This tech giant partnership builds on the commitment by Reliance Industries Chairman Mukesh Ambani who earlier announced that Jio was developing made-in-India 5G technology.
The two companies also announced that they achieved speeds of 1 Gbps on Jio’s 5G solution using a Qualcomm platform.
The partnership also includes Radisys Corporation, a US subsidiary of Jio.
This achievement not only supports Jio’s 5G credentials but also signifies the entry of Jio and India into the Gigabit 5G NR product portfolio, the two companies said in a statement.
